90210 Headlines CW Fall Lineup

The CW network is playing it safe this fall, adding only three new series to its schedule and keeping Monday and Thursday nights intact.

Tuesday night will feature the all-new lineup of 90210 followed by Surviving the Filthy Rich. On Wednesdays, America’s Next Top Model will be joined by Stylista, a new reality show from the creators of ANTM and Project Runway. Comedies Everybody Hates Chris and The Game will relocate from Sundays to Fridays, where CW execs are hoping for a little counterprogramming magic by offering the “only comedy option” of the night (unless you’ve got cable, that is).

Supernatural comedy Reaper won’t return until midseason.

  1. Oh, look–another time slot for Everybody Hates Chris. At least they didn’t kill it. And that’s good news for both Supernatural and the improving Reaper, so…yay?

    Even though I like those three, it’s hard not to look at the CW and feel a little dirty–why not just name it the PH (Paris Hilton) Network and be done with it? Which seems to be what they’re going for, so…yay?
